[PATCH v2 2/7] fs/exec: replace strncpy with strscpy_pad in __get_task_comm

From: Yafang Shao
Date: Sat Nov 20 2021 - 06:28:26 EST

If the dest buffer size is smaller than sizeof(tsk->comm), the buffer
will be without null ternimator, that may cause problem. Using
strscpy_pad() instead of strncpy() in __get_task_comm() can make the string
always nul ternimated and zero padded.
